The lights are off
Doors and windows
closed and locked.
No ghouls allowed.
Begone you evil
in the dark.
Scared me once
That's all it took.

if only...

If I were ever able to have cats again,
the male would be named Henry and
the female would be Petunia.
It can't happen for a lot of reasons, but
that's OK. I've had many cats over the years.
There was Hershey, Squeaky, Fishbait,
Max and Mandy, Patch, Felix, Pissy and Bubba.

And I miss all the dogs I had, too.
Just feeling silly-nostalgic lately.
Perhaps that's what old people do when they keep getting older.
Remembering silly little things from the past.

Hello October...


For me, it isn't just about leaves changing colors.
It's also about curling up under a warm blanket
on a chilly night and enjoying a good book.
